Sexual Harassment in New Jersey

What can you do if you are being sexually harassed at work?

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, N.J.S.A. § 10:5-1 et seq., protects employees against sexual harassment and provides a powerful remedy for those who are made to endure harassment.  It is important to remember that sexual harassment is not limited to people of a single gender or sexual orientation.

What is sexual harassment?

There are two distinct, but equally damaging, forms of sexual harassment:

Quid Pro Quo Harassment. 

This type of harassment occurs when a superior suggests or demands sexual favors in exchange for a favorable employment action (such as a raise or a promotion) or to prevent an adverse action (such as being fired or demoted).

Hostile Working Environment. 

An employee is subjected to a hostile working environment when she is forced to suffer sexually explicit language, visible pornography, offensive touching or other unacceptable practices in the workplace.
